Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings, including demographics, are available at approximately 11 AM (ET) the day after telecast, and are released to subscribing customers daily. These data, from the National People Meter sample, are strictly time-period information, based on the normal broadcast network feed, and include all programming on the affiliated stations, sometimes including network programming, sometimes not. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. For example, with a World Series game, Fast Affiliate Ratings would include whatever aired from 8-11PM on affiliates in the Pacific Time Zone, following the live baseball game, but not game coverage that begins at 5PM PT. The same would be true of Presidential debates as well as live award shows and breaking news reports.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.

Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. (See also, Rating, which represents tuning or viewing as a percent of the entire population being measured.)

Time Shifted Viewing – Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live+Same Day (Live+SD) and Live+7 Day. Time shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+Same Day (Live+SD) include viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3:00AM local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live+7 Day ratings include incremental viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.

    The action was over on cable last night. On AMC you got the 2hr season premiere to The Killing & Mad Men. On HBO it’s Game of Thrones & Veep. On SHO you had Nurse Jackie. But if none of that works try a book instead.

  • Really America?


    Neither. They usually attach a project or some social agenda with their exposure. It’s done for publicity and they have a level of success that deserves the higher profile.

    If you are talking overexposure, it’s train wrecks like Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Bynes, and anyone with the last name Kardashian who offer nothing noteworthy and are famous by the TMZ crowd.

    The ignorance here is staggering. To think there aren’t hardships facing women today simply because they are women is incredibly stupid.

    Look up figures for domestic and sexual abuse. Look up how much women make compared to men in the same positions (as of April of this year, it was 91 cents for every dollar). Educate yourselves.

  • Bob

    Women’s Concert for Change did horrible. .08 for young and 2.98 in a country with over 150 million women. Obviously women especially thought a change was not needed. How atrocious those ratings are.

  • Alex

    That’s a very good repeat performance for The American Baking Competition. Just a tenth below its original airing on Wednesday.

  • Joseph

    The hockey playoff between Chicago and Los Angeles and the Sunday-night baseball game between Boston and the New York Yankees (the biggest rivalry in that sport) obviously siphoned away viewers from the broadcast networks.

    Tonight’s (June 3rd) seventh and final game of the NBA playoff series between Miami and Indiana will draw more viewers than any broadcast network.

    In fact, it probably will be the most-watched program in TNT history and the most-watched NBA game ever on cable.

    Should Miami lose (which would be the biggest upset in NBA history), it may end up being the most-watched playoff game of this year since an Indiana/San Antonio NBA Finals will have little appeal outside of the two cities whose teams are playing.

    Why was my comment censored?

    The stated objective of Women’s Concert for Change is
    ““The Women’s Concert for Change: Live from London,” a concert event from Twickenham Stadium in London, is the centerpiece of Chime for Change, a new campaign to promote female empowerment around the world by raising awareness and generating funding for education, health care and justice.”

    I lean to the left and am all for social justice, but some of you have to get over this oppression complex you have. You seem to be confusing that equality of opportunity should mean equality of condition. You also seem to be confused that social institutions are somehow endorsing or creating felony crimes. In the U.S. women have the same access to education, health care and justice systems as men do. If you want to improve those systems fine, but you should want to improve them for the benefit of everyone. Take your politics of personal greed elsewhere.

  • Morgan Wick

    “Live from London” at 9PM ET? Not buying it.

  • cc

    If the broadcast networks are trying to force people to the cable networks they own, they are forgetting there are still many people who don’t subscribe to cable or want to.

  • John A

    Any poll for Mistresses coming

  • Really America?


    Women have equal access? Based on what standards? What is equal?

    Women, especially minority women, are less likely to receive financial aid to gain admittance to higher education than men. Women are also less likely to get sponsorship and internships to medical and science professions as employers are more likely to hire men in those fields. Women are less likely to get covered by health insurance by corporations. Women are also less likely to receive insurance money for life saving procedures than men. At work, they get paid less for the same hours at the same job. How about justice system? No, that doesn’t happen either. Women are more likely to face stigmas and roadblocks in cases of domestic and sexual abuse. They are likely to get harsher prison sentences for the same crimes as their male counterparts. Women also receive less opportunities of parole and reduced prison sentences for good behavior than their male inmates.

    All of this is off the top of my head and based on facts and figures. If you google search, you can find much more.

    There’s a reason for this social agenda and we have to be careful at what we label “equal.”

    NBC does a lot of prejudiced programming. From yesterday’s sexist “Women..for Change” to the racist ALMA and NAACP award shows, they love to separate people. Of course, a concert for men’s issues or an award show strictly limited to whites wouldn’t fit their blatant bias.

    NBC and particularly MSNBC have very bigoted styles of programming. At least their very poor ratings show that most people aren’t fooled.

  • Badlands

    Martin – If you really don’t understand why they don’t have award shows specifically for white people, it’s not worth explaining it to you.

  • Really America?


    ABC aired the ALMA Awards before NBC. The Image Awards aired on FOX before NBC. NBC did not create these award shows and they existed before NBC bid on the licensing. In order to make this statement, you’d have to say that ABC and FOX are also prejudice and then that gets into blanket statements that doesn’t apply.

    The ratings on NBC have nothing to do with these programs as they are one time airings. That’s like saying FOX has low ratings because they air the Teen Choice Awards.

    Oh my god, all the men in the comments, getting so offended over this concert is hilarious!

  • ravi

    NBC = Nobody Cares

  • DanaK

    Wow, a lot of people on here apparently don’t realize or won’t acknowledge that so many women around the world are treated very poorly and harshly, in a lot of cases because of their gender. The concert was for GLOBAL change, not just here in the US.

  • networkman

    @CBSviewer, I was thinking the same thing. American Baking Competition should go to Sunday @8pm. I feel it fits well with viewers watching 60 Minutes and Good Wife. CBS should want to move it away from Masterchef. I can see it getting at least a 1.2. That would at least be an improvement. If CBS were to keep it on Wednesday, I can see it slipping below 1.0.

    I understand CBS wanting to have another reality show to replace Survivor, but I really feel at this point all of their reality/competition shows besides Big Brother should be on Sunday night. That is why I was disappointed in CBS not premiering another new drama this Fall by using the Wednesday @8pm slot.

    NBC = Needlessly Benefitting Causes
    CBS = Continue Baking, Sugah

  • CrimTV

    Anyway the concert really had nothing to do with change, it was just musical performances.
